Couple Arrested Following Death of 11-Year-Old Texas Boy

LAS VEGAS–Two people have been arrested following the death of an 11-year-old boy in Texas. One of those arrested is a man who was already confined in a Las Vegas jail.

Authorities arrested Stormy Johnson, 37, and Corey Trumbull, 31. They booked them into a Clark County Detention Center on March 2. They booked the couple on a fugitive warrant from Wichita Falls, Texas. According to publicdata.com, Johnson is from Midland, Texas, and Trumbull is from San Angelo, Texas.

Police had already jailed Trumbull over several charges for allegedly beating Stormy Johnson in February.

Man Arrested for Domestic Battery With Substantial Bodily Harm

A week ago, detectives in Texas contacted police and said that the couple was wanted for the death of an 11-year-old boy, Logan Cline, according to the Times Record News. Police charged Trumbull with capital murder in that case. Now, law enforcement is charging both with tampering with evidence.

Police found the boy, deceased, in a car in Wichita Falls on February 27. Law enforcement had been investigating a domestic violence incident in Las Vegas. This led them to investigate the area of Kenley Avenue, where they discovered the boy’s remains.

Officials then issued warrants for the arrests of Stormy Loraine Johnson and Corey Trumbull.

Trumbull had listed his address as the San Angelo Salvation Army, a homeless shelter that closed in 2019.

Arrested Couple Had Abusive Relationship, Woman Said She Felt Unsafe

The arrest report states that the couple had been dating for about a year. They lived together in Trumbull’s car, along with a few dogs and Johnson’s teenage daughter. On February 24, Johnson told police that she didn’t feel safe. She then attempted to run away to get help.

Johnson tried to escape to a nearby 7-Eleven on Boulder Highway. Someone called 911 to find her. When she returned to Trumbull, she said he beat her with his fists and a stick inside of his car. She escaped into a business located on Glen Avenue two days later, who called the police for her.

Paramedics took Johnson to Sunrise Hospital. There, doctors treated her multiple injuries. She had broken bones, severe head pain, severe bruising, bleeding and busted lips.

After Trumbull assaulted Johnson, police took him into custody. They charged him for domestic battery with substantial bodily harm, coercion with force, kidnapping in the first degree, domestic violence and domestic battery by strangulation. We do not yet know if a serious injury attorney was involved.
